    hi BENIMUR, i really appreciate your help so much. but sadly my radio still not working. i did paired it with the same channel/frequency, but still not working. allow me to explain it clearly. i have 1 pair of radio w/c is motorola t5950. the radio 1 is working fine, like it can receive alert call/voice talk and all that. meaning when i press the talk button and the alert button, the radio 2 can get the alert call and voice talk. but if you do it on the radio 2, the radio 1 cannot get any of it. and what you can see on both screen are: batt info, dark filled small radio, sound wave sign, Qt and both same frequency/channel number. hope you can help me pls...thank you! goodday...

Initially, pls check that the displays of both radios are identical. This is important to establish that the channel/frequency, Interference eliminator settings and all others are the same that both are paired. In some instances, the radio settings may not be changed if it is locked. Top unlock, press on the MENU button for about 3 seconds. For all other settings, pls refer to the user's manual.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the postback.

    Pls try:

    • verify that the Interference Eliminator Code (0-99) are identical. This would be the small two numbers upper right hand of the channel number;

    • press & hold the MON button (lower right of the display) of radio #1, there should be noise coming out of the speakers;

    • press & hold the MON button again of radio #1 and transmit on radio #2.

    Appreciate again the update. Unfortunately, this could only mean any of four (4) things:

    • the mic of radio#2 is defective;

    • the speaker of radio#1 is defective; or

    • the encoder of radio#2 is defective;

    • the decoder of radio #1 is defective.

Why does the mic attachment on my cb radio cause receiving & output problems?

did the radio do well at the cb shop you took it to? when you re-installed it in your vehicle did you change the coax? You may think about taking it to another shop for a second opinion as to whether or not the radio was actually tuned.

What you describe is not standard for this radio. It should receive as good as any of the others you have. Are you sure you have all the knobs and switches set right. This radio is more complicated to operate than the previous versions. I personally do not operate one of the new LXs but I do seem to recall they have a RF Gain knob. This should be turned clockwise all the way. Look through the manual. You will be surprised and some of the features the radio has you didn't know about.

I cant get my surround sound to work with my satelite

If your Receiver is generally playing surround sound under normal circumstances, for eg playing radio or CDs and what ever else you may use it for, then it should play anything you have connected to its various inputs in the rear.(look for -Audio in-, you may need RCA plugs which are most common)
If your satellite receiver box has audio out sockets you need to connect this to one of your auxillary inputs on your Receiver. if it doesn't have this, you need to use the audio output from the television to your Receiver.
Providing that you have sound when using you satellite, its a matter of transferring that sound through what ever device you wish to use, eg, Receiver, Amplifier, Headphones.

My magnum when i key up it blows the fuse,what could it be?

check your aerial for open/short circuit/power wiring to cb in truck/upgrade the fuse by 1 amp/mike wiring (tx/rx) if the cb shop could'nt find anything wrong then the faults in the truck/aerial/power? or the cb shops not up to much! you could have a faulty output transistor in the cb if all else fails?
